GoPro’s HERO6 Black is rumored to be officially announced on September 28th, but in the past week, there’s been two leaked photos that are claimed to be of the upcoming HERO6 Black. The first leaked image was released by Photo Rumors last Thursday, and it revealed that the HERO6 Black offers 12-megapixels with 4K 60fps video — a step up from the HERO5 Black and HERO5 Sessions’ 4K 30fps. The photo also indicated that the new camera is water proof in depth up to 33 feet.
Now, just a few days after the first leak, the Verge has published new photos of the GoPro 6 Black from a Best Buy in Canada, offering more details. Here's a look:
The newest leak confirms that the HERO6 Black will have the same design as the HERO5 Black and will shoot 4K footage at 60 frames per second. The leak image also claims that it will be able to shoot 1080p footage at 240fps, which means that it can capture slow motion footage that’s 10 times slower than normal time.
The package revealed that the GoPro camera will be retailed for 649 Canadia dollars, which is about 499 dollars in the United States — in line with pricing of previous GoPro models. It also seems likely that GoPro will both announce and release the GoPro Hero 6 Black on September 28th.
GoPro has been going through some hard times recently, having to cut a large number of its staff since last year, but things are starting to look up for them. GoPro has said that the HERO5 Black was the best-selling digital camera in the US for three straight quarters. It’s possible that the HERO6 Black could bring them back to profitability.
